One of Nature’s Mysteries to Solve

Hey there,

It’s time for something teeny!

Mystery #127

If you know what it might be, give us a shout in the comments!


Oops, apparently we squirrels are making the most of all our daylight hours this weekend. Sorry we’re running late. We had a very close guess today. These are butterfly eggs. That leaf would give you a surefire clue, if it weren’t magnified so much. (There’s a hint-these are tiny!)

It’s a milkweed leaf…so these are Monarch eggs!

Hopefully we’ll have some caterpillars to show you soon!

  1. Hi! I think it is some sort of moth eggs, but I couldn’t say what kind of moth. They usually place their eggs underneath leafs in neat hexagonal or octogonal shapes. Hope that was of some help.

Drop us a nut to find!
